Apple pie is a favourite of ours, but we can’t eat it too often, so this is my little way of getting the taste of it, even at breakfast! These apple muffins are scrumptious! The texture is lovely and moist, and with the wholemeal flour has a good crumb. Made in less than 40 minutes including all chopping, mixing, baking and cooling, they are a great weekday breakfast, or double in lunch boxes as a treat!
125 g butter
1 cup brown sugar
80 g apple puree (I use the SPC little tubs)
1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
2 cups wholemeal flour
¾ cup of oats
A large apple, sliced thinly
1 tbs cinnamon sugar for dressing
Cream your butter and sugar together with a spoon, then add the eggs one at a time, stirring in between. Add the apple puree, ground cinnamon, vanilla, oats and flour. Stir until well combined. If the mixture looks a little dry just add a splash of milk or a tablespoon of butter. Now add the apple slices and stir Divide the mixture into a 16 hole muffin tin. Shove a few apple slices in the top if you like! Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes until golden brown. Ta da! Enjoy your scrumptious treats!
